Summary
"Solar System Dynamics provides students with a complete introduction to understanding the intricate and often beautiful resonant structure of the Solar System. Step-by-step, it shows how a basic knowledge of the two- and three-body problems and perturbation theory can be combined to understand features as diverse as the tidal heating of Jupiter's moon Io, the unusual rotation of Saturn's moon Hyperion, the origin of the Kirkwood gaps in the asteroid belt, the radial structure of Saturn's A ring, and the long-term stability of the Solar System. Problems at the end of each chapter and a free Internet Mathematica software package (that includes animations and computational tools) are provided to help students to test and develop their understanding." "Solar System Dynamics provides students with a clear, comprehensive and authoritative textbook for courses on Solar System dynamics, planetary dynamics and celestial mechanics. It also provides the necessary mathematical tools for them tackle more general courses on dynamics, dynamical systems, applications of chaos theory and non-linear dynamics."--Jacket
